Lives Well Lived

If you’re feeling a need to hear from people who have lived through a lot and have wisdom, humor and perspective to share, we’ve got just the thing. Join us for a free online screening of Lives Well Lived, one of the most uplifting films you’ll ever see, followed by a Zoom Q&A with the director and a chance to discuss the movie with others. This one-hour documentary film by Sky Bergman celebrates the incredible wit and wisdom of adults 75 to 100 years old who are living their lives to the fullest. Encompassing over 3000 years of experience, forty people share their secrets and insights into living a meaningful life. Their intimate memories and inspiring personal stories will make you laugh, and perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you. Register for the event to receive a link to watch Lives Well Lived on January 20. Then join us on January 21 at 1:00 PM to participate in a virtual Q&A with the filmmaker. This program has been generously sponsored by Cathy and Morris Bart.
